What is the song Breakfast by Oritse Femi all about?

This is a motivational song. Oritse Femi in this song spurs you to keep thriving regardless of the challenges and the crowd of people desiring what you want, because, in the end, everybody would have an opportunity to live a good life, just like breakfast. 

According to him, there is enough space and opportunity to be what you want in life. He also talks about grabbing opportunities when they come even if it means giving up something to have it.

Also, the artist talks about living his life and occupying where he wants, and not trying to prove that he is better than anyone.

Interestingly, from this song originated a new Nigeria “Everybody loma je breakfast,” which basically signifies that at on point or the other, people will experience break-up, or any bad news.
